Depends on what the documents are about. If the documents are talking about how being gay is bad, then that’s pretty unethical. Otherwise, your sexuality doesn’t really have anything to do with it…
Agreed. Documents about how a group of people are wrong and should be excluded? That’s not a good idea. Or if the denomination has a history of being crappy to LGBT people, again that’s not something you want to be part of.
But if it’s something for a LGBT-Affirming church like Episcopalians, UCC, or ELCA, that’s fine.
I checked out these links. In this case, my opinion doesn’t matter. I’ll leave it up to our 2,146 followers: if more of you have objections to trans* instead of trans, we’ll be glad to drop the asterisk. Regardless, this online community is inclusive of anyone who wants to be included.
toboldlysplitinfinitive replied to your post “Why does God make people trans*? As in, why didn’t he just have them born as the same sex they identify as? Why would he put someone through that confusion?”
Did you know that the asterisk is unnecessary and has been used in transmisogynistic and exclusionary ways? ‘Trans’ or ‘trans/nb’ are the accepted umbrella terms to avoid offence.
Does everyone else who is a part of this community agree? How would you like your community to be mentioned? Asterisk, no asterisk?
